Professional Development Day at the European School
Quality teaching is a number one priority at the European School. To help teachers hone their skills, improve practices and stay current with changes related to teaching and learning, the European School provides them with several professional development days throughout the academic year. The most recent PD took place on March 9, 2018. Teachers focused on improving their teaching methods and participated in relevant trainings: planning, implementing and evaluating teaching practices; tips on writing recommendation letters for students; developing entrepreneurship in primary school; using Khan Academy in the classroom, etc. Teachers, who have undergone CLIL training provided by the British Council, shared their experiences with the rest of their colleagues. All in all, the PD proved to be very productive as teachers focused on those changes that affect their work with students, explored new technologies, new ideas about teaching and learning and identified the school’s needs.
